Book Nook: Tangled Up

 Each year, National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day (May 7) seeks to raise awareness about the importance of children’s mental health in their overall development. 

Tangled Up, a colorful, delightfully illustrated book written by Jamie Edelbrock, helps children to detangle their emotions and manage their feelings.

Kids come with a full spectrum of emotions, some of which are too big to keep inside. Each child processes their feelings differently but learning to deal with them is an important part of growing up.

Studies show one in six kids between the ages of two-and eight-years-old have a mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder. Navigating this world as a parent can be scary; experiencing this as a young child can be even scarier.

Tangled Up lessens the fear of the unknown and shines a positive, peaceful light on therapy and mental health. It colorfully shows how the beautiful threads of us can become tangled, and how counselors and therapists are here to help us twirl bravely through life.
